Filming has recently begun on director Steven Soderbergh’s ensemble piece Contagion. The film, as suggested by the title, has to do with a viral outbreak. There’s a lot at stake and a lot of A-List stars lending their time and talent to tell the story. Jude Law is one of the actors featured in the film, and we’ve discovered several photos of him on set in San Francisco shooting some scenes. Check them out…

Contagion’s story will center on the “outbreak of a deadly virus,” and have the majority of the cast members playing doctors and scientists. The latest plot details reveal that an international team of medical professionals will be brought in by the “CDC (Centers for Disease Control) once the sickness outbreak starts.” The story will also take place on four continents, which will have the characters jet setting across the globe to help contain the disease.

The film will star Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Poor Mr. Law. He has to wear the most uncomfortable suit during this scene. At least he’s protecting himself from whatever the hell it is they’re trying to escape in the film.

Contagion is scheduled to hit theaters on October 21, 2011.
